turmoil in ukraine takes the forefront to the security conference in munich. pushing it but there's a new. you retreat rights that are becoming more and more violent to promote democracy. and russia's foreign minister also hits out at the e.u. for bias over its view of the riots that have split the country in the middle. there's no food nothing to eat or drink the militants are inside i swear on the soul of the prophet we want this to stop visits a starving rebel held palestinian refugee camp in syria that receives its first food aid in months of the dozens of people have died from hunger. as the olympic flame goes to the top of europe's highest peak just
a stone's throw from its final destination. which was a brand new course where cross-country skiers and biathletes will be racing for gold in a matter of days. this is art international live from a studio center here in moscow where it's just past one am and ten pm in munich where the second day of the security conference is about to wrap up and it's the two months of turmoil in ukraine that have been in the spotlight with both the country's foreign minister and opposition front man vitaly klitschko having their say. is that. the authorities were saying that they have complied with the demands of the protesters are canceling the so-called war which basically triggered the latest wave of mass protests in the country and bring it also been detained during the protest being calling for
a right radicals but judging by what we heard from one of the leaders of the opposition and former boxer who thought he could score he's not ready to stop this fight perhaps like in a boxing match since he said this is not enough what they want to see are completely reforms of the financial and political system in the country and the want to see the role in the elections and clearly the many western countries have been on their side that we've heard from the u.s. secretary of state john kerry will said the time for the of the scum to decide whether it's with one country or with the rest of the world adding that washington supports the ukrainian people but many have criticized this a one sided approach including russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov it is the new beautiful there are some fundamental questions that need to be answered in particular about the situation in ukraine how does fuel rods that are becoming more and more violent with democracy why is there no condemnation of those besieged and
even still occupying government buildings were those who burns police officers racist anti-semitic and nazi slogans why do many leading european politicians encourage such actions any violations of the home or don't leave harshly. some strong words there from russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov also made a joke commenting on mr kerry's statement saying that the next time we meet he is going to ask him about his master grades in school saying clear how many countries are in that group which he called the rest of the world. so the u.s. secretary of state john kerry has reiterated that washington stands with the people of ukraine but the latest polls show two thirds of them are against the habit been plaguing kiev and the country's western regions and many fear civil war political analyst alexander public believes the support shown by the us for the riots is all about geopolitics now we have the nato general secretary.
making more and more comments in this regard again favoring the protesters of course the ukraine is is a prize par excellence if you're moving east toward russia and obviously nato has been moving east since it's just the end of the cold war more than twenty years ago the thing is it seems like the end justifies the means this is again not anything new for the west they're playing real politics and it has nothing to do very little to do with democracy it has much to do with pragmatic geo political interests and people are just being used as pawns unfortunately. with the government and the opposition failing to reach a consensus on the syrian crisis there's no letup in the miserable plight of refugees eight hundred thousand people in the palestinian camps south of damascus remain a siege by rebels food aid was finally able to reach the area yesterday after months
of waiting but at least fifty five people have died from hunger or notion of visited the site. another battleground of the brutal syrian war in the very heart of the country and at the edge of the regime stronghold this is your new cullison in camp here in damascus that has been held by the militants for more than a year now we are not allowed to go any further because there are military people who are controlling situation here on the ground told us that the ras ny person and the raw armed man behind this building but it's not only from bullets that people here are dying when we visit dozens already said to have died from starvation a year after the siege began food and water supplies a role but gone. there's no food nothing to eat or drink the militants are inside as well and the soul of the prophet we want this to stop whatever guilty are we
just want to go out they want to go out but they can't they're trapped those hold in the camp only allow women and elderly men to go out briefly to bring in food a distributed by the syrian and palestinian officials together with the u.n. their families remain inside so they have to return to the besieged camp and rest i must say that well we're talking to one of my questions to an old man behind those collapses to the ground level no one could tell us exactly why was there of. my god who are dying from hunger we can't take this anymore. humanitarian aid is the only achievement so far i ask those responsible how they know that the food they deliver will not fall into the militants hands they say no one can give any going t. . siege has become a popular tactic among rebel forces here in syria just recently we went to the
industrial city of outside damascus according to army generals at least five thousand three main trap there sieges serve well to work in an army has capabilities keeping large forces tied up for long periods of time but they have another go to your reduce your own. they claim the syrian government is besieging the palestinians in the camp they want to invert the truth by saying the syrian government is part of the killing force as they don't do anything to protect the people they want the people to hit the regime people accusations over the next of the syrian authorities allowed indeed government officials blame the militants for infiltrating into the cities in the first place and complain they can do little to fight back now as civilians could be hurt and thousands of ordinary people all over syria remain hostage inside their own homes waiting for help. already three years

because we all know that for rain equals terrorism. and he didn't hesitate to request comments from the agency and you can find out what the reaction was and check out the full show off to this very short break more news in just about half an hour from now. take me up to the ballgame and take me through the metal detector so wait that's not how the song goes well as the country changes sadly so must the national pastime they said the mariners released a statement that they like all of the teams for twenty fifteen are setting up metal
detectors to screen all fans entering their stadium for get visions of hotdogs and home runs now everyone will be able to tell their grandkids about how their bags got searched because they had metal buttons at company name stadium baseball memories the team's management is also continuing their ban on bags larger than forty by forty by twenty centimeters because if you're going to stick an explosive device it had better be compact their body maybe i'm jumping the gun metal detectors can't touch your genitals or do a naked body scan probably they're. with the least intrusive coming forward security scan then again think about it they want to prevent some terrorist from blowing up a densely packed crowd of people in the stadium so the m l b wants teams to create densely packed lines of people outside the stadium before the game starts well these security measures really stop a psychotic terrorist murder nope but that's just my opinion. the.
happy friday folks i'm out at martin and this is a break in the set so yesterday the governor of massachusetts announced that federal prosecutors will be seeking the death penalty for a show cars of one of the alleged boston marathon bombers yes after shooting dozens of rounds of bullets at sarnath and leaving a near death it was a nurse back to health only to face execution all over again make sense now of course justice needs to be served for the perpetrators of this despicable act in which four people tragically lost their lives and dozens more were left were invented and hopefully a trial will indeed prove that was responsible for the death penalty is banned in our massachusetts state law which means he's the only third the only the third person in the state's history to face federal capital punishment furthermore a september poll found that only thirty three percent of massachusetts residents support the death penalty for. and by seeking execution the trial could drag on for
months three traumatizing america for much longer than necessary but beyond just these reasons not to allow the state sponsored execution of the twenty year old capital punishment is just flat out wrong there is no humane way to kill someone and seeking the death penalty does nothing i continue the cycle of horrific violence and brutality that this attack first started now let's break the set. the. it was a really very hard to take a. look. at her act with that her right there.
between tracking people's porn habits to spying on next lovers you would think that the n.s.a. leaks couldn't get any weirder revelation from earlier this week shows that the agency is also watching you play angry birds today to mine everything from a user's political affiliation to their sexual orientation great cause i won't be playing candy crush any time soon but with all the flak that the n.s.a. has been getting over the past year it's easy to forget that our neighbor to the north how exactly been a huge advocate for civil liberties either so well the corporate media is attention has been soley focused on uncle peeping tom the most recent snowden leaks show that a johnny come knock who's also been sticking his hockey puck or doesn't belong today c.b.c. news reported that canada is owned by an agency called c sec used the airport why
fight attract travelers movements but the agency didn't stop there second continue tracking individuals long after they left the airport by monitoring when their wireless devices showed up at other wife i hotspots in cities across canada and the u.s. according to leave power point presentation in two thousand and twelve the program was a trial run for a joint n.s.a. program to track quote. any target that makes occasional forays into other cities because we all know that for rain equals terrorism. the document also shows that the sec was able to go back in time once i did it once that identified a specific traveler and see that person's various wife by location leading up to their arrival at the airport yes retro active tracking and i guess time travel isn't just reserved for marty mcfly anymore so how is. this bombshell report on a written response of the agency i'm sorry in a written response to c.b.c.
news the agency said quote no canadian or foreign travelers movements were tracked no i didn't add quotes that were tracked that was their exact response i guess putting words in quotes is all you need to do to justify illegality in canada the n.s.a. should employ that tactic and their response is if director of national intelligence james clapper want to just use air protests when he told congress that the n.s.a. does not wittingly collect data on americans it would put those old unconstitutional global surveillance in the rest in fact clinton might have been spared an impeachment if only he would have said that i did not have sexual relations with that woman and bush would have gone down as a slightly more popular president if he would have just said that we found the weapons of mass destruction the point is that they had gas city of c. sec to get this type of response should be just as concerning to every canadian citizen is the revelation of the program itself terry was privacy minutes.
